Hi Jordan, With digital photography testing is fun and free. Take the lens for a healthy walk and show us the results. We will honestly tell you if you got a "lemon" or a "nomilk" (tm) "baytresure" (tm), I promise ;-) At F4-F11 you should get decent sharp results, how nice the contrast and color rendition and bokeh is would be interesting to see here. I think 135mm is a uncritical focal length but don't expect superior results at f 2.8 or against the sun.
